Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Dick and Jane and other old friends return in new ways, in books for beginning readers. The paperback Read with Dick and Jane series presents repackaged editions of the vintage readers that generations of Americans grew up on-with their familiar large type, simple sentences and 1950s illustrations. Each book features six or seven stories that get progressively more challenging, with longer sentences and less repetition. In We Look, Sally tries to walk in her mother's shoes, Dick wears roller-skates to walk Spot ("Look, Jane./ Look, look./ See Dick") and Jane dresses up Puff the cat as a baby. The series also includes Something Funny; Jump and Run; Guess Who; Go Away, Spot; and Go, Go, Go. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
I guess it is showing my age, but I certainly remember learning to read with Dick, Jane, Sally and Spot. It was a great accomplishment in first grade to be able to read one of those books aloud in my reading circle and to move myself up from the lowest non-reading level to the top group (turned out I needed glasses). These books have been reissued in both paper and library binding for another generation of beginning readers. It starts out very simply with a few words and those same words repeated several times on a page. The kids are playing games and Sally asks for help in locating her yellow ball. In the last chapter, we see the three kids watching dad make a concrete sidewalk. The kids end up putting their foot and handprints in the walk and readers are asked to guess which pair belongs to whom. If it were not for the outfits—dresses for the girls and mother's dress and shoes, it would not be that different an experience for many kids. There is still a sense of accomplishment moving from the very simple early text to the more complex pages at the end with multiple sentences on a page. Part of the "Read with Dick and Jane" series. 2003 (org. 1951), Grosset & Dunlap, Ages 5 to 7.
